If anyone could offer a suggestion of fast money making, I would appreciate it. My spouse refuses to work, and though I work full time at a good job, I am continually struggling and it is taking a tole on my health. I can't get groceries this week!!!!! I just hate this.

This also prevents me from getting my medications and going to counseling for codependancy issue. My spouse on the other hand, gets all of his meds and goes to his appts. I am losing it here.

Well, there is Therapy available most places on a sliding scale, which often figures in expenses, as well as free support groups like CoDA.

As far as fast cash, there is selling your old cds and dvds, consigning clothes you don't wear anymore, selling your husbands bongs to the neibor kid (Just Kidding, but you smiled, didn't you?), a yard sale... there's also those cash advance places, but that could end up being more expensive than it is worth. Just a few thoughts, good luck!

thanks exoticflower!
the sliding scale thing is good,but i work so much i don't have much time either, as well as money
selling old cd's may work, cosigning clothes hasn't worked and he won't let me sell the bong (how did you know?), and yes, I did laugh. Sad thing is I work for a financial lending institution and can't even manage my own...any other suggestions? I have been searching for some type @ home money makers.....

You could do some sort of online survey thing, they usually pay an ok ammount. The problem with the at home things is that they are so often a scam or cost a lot of money to get started on. Maybe you could sell Avon or Mark? Or something no-one else at your work sells? Just leave the pamphlets at the water cooler with your name on them, hand out samples to ladies you know buy stuff.

You can also try having a candle party or something, where you let someone else come and do the sales, you just get a presentage for bringing the people in and hosting it at your home or venue.

Are you familiar with the online surveys? Do they request my bank info? How does it pay? I would sit all day on the weekends & do surveys if I knew it would bring some cash and not "points". Thanks so much for your input!!

Hi! i know you said you don't have much extra time... I can only suggest jobs that work around your schedule like cleaning someone's house. I don't know what they make where you are, but here they make $10-12 per hour on the average.

Mowing yards isn't to shabby on the money end. Also, if you do odd type jobs then put an add in the free paper or the local paper and put up posters at the post office, grocery, pharmacy, library, etc.

Best of luck to you.

thank you for the suggestions mamacinnamon! I live in a college town and am new to my area, so it is tough to find those things, I have tried a few. I just wish I could find that darn money tree!!

Honey, as old as I am and watchin my little brother try to find that money tree and my hubby.... Just wanted to give you a head's up... there is NO money tree to the best of my knowledge. I'm sorry to say.

Budget wisely, kick hubby in the pants and throw him into rehab and live. If he cannot or will not hold up his half of the commitment then give him an eyeopener. It's hard I know. I've been where you are. I even told my son's fiance that if he chooses to do drugs she should not marry him. It's a hard row to hoe. Love is great, but is it worth you're health and being drug down? NO. My health is really bad and it's from ptsd from the evil X. If this is affecting your health, then you MUST make some type changes and keep yourself well. I am not saying divorce him. I feel marriage should be held together if possible. But honey, it takes two. One will not work.

Sorry I got off the money subject, but just wanted to share my life experience coz I truly hate seeing anyone else go down that wrong path.

Hi Dgroovy: A friend of mine had been in the same situation and she put an ad in the local throwaway paper to do odd jobs- she would do a lot for older people like pick up prescritions, give them rides to the doctor or run errands, do ironing, etc. Plus if you have any items you could sell on e bay, that might help. Its a tough spot to be in. Do you have any hobbies/ talents that you could profit from? Making things to sell? Do you sew- maybe make custom clothes or the like (pareos, scarves?)? Photography? Or can you do side work for whatever your profession is? Just some ideas.

Do you type or word process? Being in a college town, students may need papers prepared. I hired someone when I was in college to type my thesis. SD

What bills do you have?

What is your income?

Can you borrow from a friend or relative?

Go to your college and ask about temporary emergency loans.

There are also assistance programs for utility companies. Churches also have programs as well. The welfare office might be able to hook you up with some names and numbers. Good luck, I have been there way too many times.

chinesestudent....

you may want to explain your situation a little to us. Let us know what is troubling you, and we can offer some help, hopefully.
